republicans are making it clear they see that as a liberal agenda. speaker john boehner, other house republican leaders are about to hold a news conference. you're looking at live pictures from up there. our chief national correspondent john king is here. are the gloves off? >> you can certainly say yes or you might even say that the gloves are still on in the sense that republicans are looking to see what signals the president would send as he begins the second term. if you ask john boehner or mitch mcconnell, they believe the size of government, debt and deficit is is the biggest issues. and if you listen to the speech yesterday, he made only passing references to that. talk of immigration reform, many republicans including the speaker want to work with the president on that but if he talks a lot publicly, it puts pressure on the conservative base which any legal status is amnesty. the president also talking about gun control and gun rights, just talked to tom fuentes, it stretches the political coalition. the things that the president highlighted and spend more time on his inaugur
and john boehner in a back room, and we just sit around. >> so much of the disillusionment you hear from members who feel they're going to make a difference is exactly what you're talking about. and so much of the infighting is really not so much between the parties, while there's plenty of that, there is such a frustration between house and senate. they openly knock each other in the hallways because they operate differently. and we have this whole sort of filibuster battle going on in the senate. the rules and how do things get through. and on the house side over and over again, there's this weary sense of they've passed some things. they may not be popular everywhere, but they did pass a budget. so what they're trying to do with this no budget, no pay is to sort of turn up the screws on the senate. and so republicans hoping to not get the blame for some of these fights are trying to focus a light on the senate not passing a budget which most people don't even realize has happened. >> i get your point, though. it's got to be frustrating to see the big debates get resolved in this backr
the gop should embrace obama. so if you are talking to john boehner or mitch mcconnell, you will have sort of a different message to them. i don't consider you a liberal democrat or a right-wing republican. right? politics aside. >> i am sort of down the middle. so why would you argue that thegol g.o.p. should embrace obama? >> i didn't write that headline. my friends wrote it but the gist of this article is, is that if you look at everything obama did or most of the things he did over the past four years, his big policies, he borrowed them from past republican presidents. i went all the way back to nixon. nix on raised taxes on the rich cut them on the poor. ronald reagan backed an assault weapons ban. ronald reagan was the first president to support what we now call cap and trade. ronald reagan. when i tweeted that yesterday, when i wrote about it, of course, i got bombarded with the usual, oh, you are just full of it, bravenld u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. def -- brand u.s. you don't know what you are talking about. people don't get it. r
on inside that inaugural luncheon where the president is sitting down with harry reid and john boehner and talking with evan bahy over the weekend, i'm sure they took the sharp objects off the table and have a food taster. and one said, don't worry, my vice chair lamar alexander will be sitting between them to make sure things are civil. all joking aside, they thought this is going to be a good luncheon and everybody will be professional and the big battles of course, will come tomorrow. and don't forget that hillary clinton is also, secretary of state going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. that will be another big event that happens here on capitol hill. now, to the parade, we can pan off just a little bit and you can see that some folks have gathered here at the beginning of the parade, quite a bit different than it was at least at this point from 2009, where people were 20, 30 deep along the parade route. we'll probably see that, and looks like people, five, six people deep headed down constitution avenue. we make the turn on to pennsylvania avenue and then a slow crawl up
alexander, the wife of senator lamar alexander. and by debby boehner, wife of house speaker john boehner. sorry to interrupt you there. >> more recently, you may disagree with the content and the tone but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> we
% of americans approve of the job he's doing as president. only 26% approve of the republican party. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, 9% approval rating. this is a movement, this is a party in retreat and that's why the president did what he did yesterday. >> let's look at that. best case scenario would be to have two strong parties and a great national conversation and great sense of balance. i understand how you could read the speech as i won, ha-ha, and also, could be seen as this is what the country is telling me. how do we get the other points of view in there. maybe perhaps -- this is the hard part, extract what i think is dying and what i think you think is dying, that is the extremist part of that. >> the extreme part of the republican party is in retreat and just as bill buckley chased john birchers out of the conservative movement in the 1960s, so, too, will these extremists be chased out of the mainstream of the republican party. they will evolve or they will die. it's that simple. i'm not so sure the president can say, katty kay, this is what the american people

% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval rating. the tea party, a 9% approval rating. i wonder what lens they are looking through. >> well i think that's the problem. i think that's the problem with ted cruz's performance yesterday, michael steele because that is not what i think we're going to see down the road road, the new republican party is going to look like. >> i think coming on the heels of the inauguration in the next few weeks, what the american people are looking for is that rodney king moment that little bit of light where we can get along and begin to get things done. i think to joe's point, and to yours, mika yesterday ted cruz was sending out another call taking a different tone and direction than the one the american people are expecting beginning in this atmosphere with the inauguration, the excitement of that. people expect the partisanship to get to the water's edge and stop and begin something fresh. >> by the way, this is not for us -- this is not for the republicans to be nice. >> no exactly. >> this isn't about being nice. this i

that the president put out were greeted with lukewarm response. john boehner's spokesman put out a statement saying the house will look at those recommendations and if the senate pass as bill they will look at that too but no commitment move to any legislation in the house of representatives. so, larry, it looks like a lot of these proposals will not happen but there were more than 20 elements of what he proposed today, the president that were, in fact, executive actions that he could sign today and enforce through the executive branch of the government and that he did. so the rest of the proposals will be legislative and we'll have to see how they fare. >> as always, thanks eamon javers. the national rifle association is pushing back with a tough new ad campaign labelling the president an elitist hypocrite for allowing his own kids to have their protection. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? then why is he skeptical about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are protected by armed guards at their school? mr. obama demands the wealthy pay their fair share of taxes
in the capitol the president, speaker john boehner, majority leader harry reid and a few others. you can imagine what the atmosphere will be like given a lot of words that have flown back and work, particularly between speaker boehner and majority leader reed. for a little more insight on all this, i contacted andy card, president george bush's first white house chief of staff. he was here the day of the inauguration back in 2001 and told me he expects there may be a bit of a similar atmosphere to that of 12 years ago. here's what he told me. >> i suspect it will probably be a lot like the atmosphere that george w. bush experienced in his first term of office. it was a little bit chilly and cold, but at the same time, you can't help but be wrapped up in the excitement of an inauguration. >> andy card also told me he was one of those republicans, although he didn't support president obama, he was very excited for historic reasons about his inauguration back in 2009. i have spoken to a number of republicans over the past few days about the excitement of the inauguration. they all said they will be

means the inside game just sitting down with john mccain and john boehner doesn't work so well on these issues. i think he will make aning a aggressive effort to engage the public. he has taken his campaign organization, obama for america, and turned it into an advocacy group called, organizing for action. i think part of the effort is going to be mobilize public support for his agenda. shepard: it's my understanding the vice president will be walking, there is the first lady, michelle obama. ab stod stoddard is with us. reading all the blogs, what will she be wearing. narrate if if you will. >> she is in combination a tom brown dress. she has a different bells on. j. crew and j. crew shoes. this will go to the national arc kifs immediately after she wears it. she looks absolutely smashing. understated but truly elegant. shepard: she has entered the crypt and come down the stairs. she will be announced as we she walks out. first lady will be followed by the president. let's listen as they make the now traditional walk. this is five inaugurations for me and walking down these st
